I TOOK A “BLOGGING” VACATION
At the end of August, Virginia and I took a wonderful, relaxing vacation to California to visit family, drink lots of wine and bask in the 90+ degree weather. We spent one day in San Francisco and after marching through the city for most of the day, we splurged and hired a bicycle cab to take us back to the BART station. It was a perfect ending to a great day in SF. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that we took AMTRAK’s Coast Starlight Line which turned out to be one of the most relaxing, enjoyable trips we’ve taken in years.
Now, Let’s Talk Vegetables
Yes, I’ve been remiss in my weekly food box reports. I’ll admit that I was more interested in enjoying the great weather and riding our tandem than blogging in August. In any case, here are the main pics for the last 5 weeks of our organic food boxes:
Green beans, zucchini, peaches, sweet corn, heirloom tomato, broccoli, braising mix, yellow fin potatoes and blueberries
WEEK 11 & 12
Wheat berries, hard red wheat flour, Honey Straws, butter, golden potatoes, duck eggs, hen eggs, rhubarb, broccoli, green beans, peaches, heirloom tomatoes, arugula, braising mix, pears and sweet corn.
